Rep. Johnson Rejects Possible Cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security

Jan 24, 2013 Issues: Seniors and Social Security

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) remains steadfastly opposed to benefit cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. Using the chained CPI to reduce cost of living adjustments is a benefit cut that middle-class Americans cannot afford.

“Whether pursued through the budget process or any other means, I will do everything in my power to oppose these cuts. The American public has been clear they want Congress to defend and strengthen Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. I have stood with them throughout this process, and I will continue to stand with them.”
